PAX 09: Destructoid community meetup plans!

3:20 PM on 09.03.2009 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

PAX is less than 72 hours away now, and I know all of you coming this weekend are excited beyond belief. In fact, there’s a handful of people, including a bunch of the UK Dtoiders, in Seattle right now awaiting the big gaming party this weekend.

Thursday: At 5:00PM, Dtoider pendelton21 is getting this image made by our comic guy, Mikey, as a tattoo. Yes, really! He’ll be at Apocalypse Tattoo getting the ink.   

The Elephant & Castle, located right underneath the Red Lion Hotel, is the main rendezvous point for Destructoid all weekend long. If you're ever feeling lonely, just stop by the bar and you'll likely find people hanging outside (weather permitting). At around 7:00 PM, the group will be splitting up -- a bunch of people are going to a fancy dinner while the other group stays at the Elephant & Castle. 

At 9:00PM, both groups will be meeting up at Shorty’s on 2222 2nd Avenue, #A, and we'll all be staying until last call.

Friday: PAX TIME! Congrats to pheonix-blood, Dexter345, KyleGamgee, Toneman, LostCrichton, DJDuffy, The GHost, Tactix, Pangloss, pendelton21 and Kryptinite, who will all be taking on Mr. Destructoid duties as they walk the show floor from 10:00AM to 8:00PM.

From 12:00 to 1:00PM in the Unicorn Theatre is the “Hey Ash, Whatcha Filmin: How to make a moderately successful viral video series that confuses the hell out of people” panel. 

At 2:30 to 3:30PM in the Raven Theatre is the “How can we make online gaming communities suck less?” panel, hosted by Destructoid. DO NOT MISS THIS PANEL! Seriously, it’s going to be epic. Also, be sure to wear your Destructoid shirt at this time, as we’ll be taking the annual big group photo right after the panel. P.S. This is where you'll come to pick up your "Become" Dtoid shirt!

Then, in the evening, find Destructoid at the Elephant & Castle again at 10:00PM partying it up.

Saturday: Suit night! Various members are bringing their suits and dresses to dress up for the evening just because they want to. Plus, you’d want to look good while doing some karaoke at the The Crescent, wouldn’t you? Don't worry though, you DON'T have to dress up. You can show up in whatever you'd like to wear. Karaoke fun time will start at 9:00PM.

Sunday: Let’s drink the night away in style over at The Whisky Bar at 8:00PM. Plus, it’s near the water. 

Monday: Everyone cries, says their goodbyes and starts planning for PAX East and PAX Seattle 2010.

The plans can change on the fly, so you best be following on Twitter Hamza CTZ Aziz, Niero, Colette, Samit Sarkar, Nick Chester, Dale North, Jordan Jevore, Rey Gutierrez and Jonathan Ross so you can stay updated on all the plans throughout the weekend. 

See you all very soon!

You ever dream of flying through the clouds, but couldn't so you just watch TV? Me neither.

Oh GOOD, The Flock is awful. I was hoping to break my high review score streak. (this is a joke)

So many PAX things to write. So many.

Bwahahahaha .... my helicopter now arrives in the middle of a fight blaring "Take on Me" on the loudspeakers. Metal Gear 5, 10/10. [youtube]https://youtu.be/djV11Xbc914[/youtube]

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

S Rank is so satisfying. Too bad I rarely earn it!

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

FFXV is supposedly 10x as big as The Witcher 3. Wow ... [img]http://i.imgur.com/9tfSuxQ.png[/img] http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/09/01/final-fantasy-xv-map-size-potentially-revealed-its-roughly-an-enormous-780-square-miles/

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...
Shinta avatarShinta
I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.

my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.
El Dango avatarEl Dango
Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

Drew a preeeeeeety sweet thing for the August edition of Cblog Recaps. Keep an eye out for it!

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.
